The next open photo tour on my schedule will allow us to enjoy some of the highlights of Tanzania’s famed northern safari circuit, including the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. We’ll also have off-roading privileges in the Ndutu Conservation Area, and even a walking safari in Arusha National Park. Witness the spectacle that is the culmination of the annual wildebeest migration, when millions of antelope drop their calves on the green plains of the Serengeti. This birthing ritual brings out the predators, and we’ll expect to see plenty of big cats, including lions, leopards and cheetahs.
Of course, being Africa, we want to photograph more than just the big cats, and we’ll be treated to some amazing biodiversity. Elephants, giraffes, rhinos (including the possibility of seeing the critically endangered black rhino) and other large mammals will be on our wish list. With the approach of the wet season, we can expect heightened bird activity. From eagles and owls to more colorful migrating birds, it should be a great time for bird photography to complement all of the mammals we’ll see.
Stops on this tour include:
- Arusha National Park
- Ngorongoro Crater
- Serengeti National Park
- Ndutu Conservation Area
- Lake Manyara National Park
